The Jardine Suite has been renovated from a concourse into a 540sqm conference room, with a capacity for up to 650 delegates.

The new Jardine Suite is part of a wider refurbishment project at the Kia Oval that has seen more than £2.5m invested in the venue’s facilities. This includes the £250,000 development of the Corinthian Roof Terrace last year and the £2m renovation of the Members’ Pavilion.

Charlie Hodgson, commercial director, Kia Oval, said: "Our conference and events business has been growing rapidly over the last 12-18 months and, as a result, we have had capacity issues on a regular basis. 

"The Jardine suite not only gives us much needed space, it also opens up a new marketplace."
